All the Way (Romancing Manhattan #1) by Kristen Proby

Wednesday, February 6, 2019

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new Romancing Manhattan series, three brothers get more than they bargain for as they practice law, balance life, and navigate love in and around New York City.

Finn Cavanaugh is known for being a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom. He owns a successful law firm with his brother and brother-in-law in Manhattan. On the rare occasion that he has down time, he spends it at his home in Martha’s Vineyard. But when Finn’s troubled niece goes to stay with him for the summer in Martha’s Vineyard, he’s reluctant to take time off from work. That is, until he meets his beautiful new neighbor, London.

London Watson is a Tony Award winning actress on Broadway. When tragedy strikes her family, leaving her alone and injured, she flees Manhattan for Martha’s Vineyard. Hoping she can figure out how to pick up the pieces of her life, London is convinced that she’ll never be able to return to the stage. But when she meets the charming young girl next door and her sexy uncle, they soon lure London out of her shell as she finally begins to heal from the wounds of her past.

But when London feels confident enough to return to the spotlight, she’s dealt another devastating blow. Will the newfound love between London and Finn be enough to conquer all? Or will it be over before it has a chance to grow…?

Goodreads Summary

I loved this book. School started for me and this book provided the perfect distraction. The author crafted a fun and flirty romance complete with a sexy heroine and a charismatic "hero." London suffered the loss of her parents and potentially the loss of her career. When she meets Finn she has no idea if her life will ever recover from her losses. Finn is the prototypical protective guy. I liked how invested he became in London and how badly he felt for her between her injury (her leg was damaged and prevented her from dancing) and for the deaths of her parents. I felt like these characters were very sincere and sweet towards each other. Kristin Proby created a loving, kind atmosphere.

I liked London's character. She came off as smart, a little quirky, and self-sufficient despite her troubles. I liked the transformation of her character from unhappy to getting a grip on her life and changing her attitude. The romance didn't feel fake or forced. Their relationship developed pretty organically. The author writes very succinctly and evenly. I could vividly picture the scenes and (how I think) the characters would look off the pages. Overall, this is a great beach or vacation read.
